Mon, Dec 11: Oaxaca Report-back and Discussion with Barucha Calamity Peller & Friends

8pm, Monday December 11
16 Beaver st. 4th floor (directions)

Barucha Calamity Peller, who has participated in anti-authoritarian collectives in Mexico for the past 4 years, has just returned from Oaxaca where there has been a widely defended popular uprising and where dozens of people have died and disappeared in this past week alone. She will give a presentation on the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca (APPO), the life at the barricades, international solidarity and the brutal repression and assassinations at the hands of paramilitaries and police throughout last month and specifically on November 25th. Her presentation and first hand accounts will also include a slideshow and recent videos from Oaxaca. Representatives from the Friends of Brad Will network will join in the discussion about local solidarity efforts.

Brutal force continues to be exerted by the Mexican state upon the people of Oaxaca. What more can we learn about the situation? And how can this knowledge inform our actions or activities here? How can individuals living in this context contribute to the rebellion that is taking place in
Oaxaca? What forms can solidarity take in this instance?

This event is hosted by the 16Beaver Group and Not An Alternative. http://www.16beavergroup.org
